Yeh you shouldbt need to file anyway, just drill out the old rubber, cut the outer ring with a hacksaw and then the old bush will tap out.
Then for the new one just push it in and then press the metal tube in
Looks to me like it just pushes in from one side and then you press in the metal tube, similar to ppwerflex but in one part.
I'd just get ppwerflex to be fair, tried and tested for years, I've never heard of flow flex
Same. Admiral with all mods declared was a reasonable price on my civic, it was a complete pain in the arse trying to even get a quote out of sky and Adrian flux so I gave up and just renewed with admiral. They literally charged me nex to nothing per mod anyway, I think it went up by 15 quid.
Yeh I'd stick a pre cat lambda sensor in, post cat doesn't really do anything.
You could try swapping them over, but if they are both the same ages then likely both are past it.
Is it an OEM cat? My 182 had a pattern cat on it and failed the mot every year, I then managed to get a genuine 182...
To be fair these must be the only car I've come across where people on forums treat belt changes like some kind of holy ritual, and if the belt wasn't done by the chosen specialist it's worthless lol.
It's a Renault clio lol, not a lambo
Yeh your average punter isn't going to pay an additional 500 quid because you says it's had the belts done.
I'd just advertise it at around the ballpark figure, knowing that you will probably get knocked down 500 or so due to the belts.
You never know, some idiot who doesn't know any better...
Lol I had a ktec stealth, horrific sounding things.
I had toyed with the idea of chopping the stealth pipe off, and aiming it out of the rear bumper in a cutout, as apparently that reduces the drone, but in the end I just sold the car
Crazy init. I got 440 for my fn2 civic cat.
Tommy is your boy for the best price. Or sell it to Yorkshire pudding, let him take a cut, and then you don't have to wait 3 months for Tommy to message you back on Facebook lol
Haha I recently did it with my civic. What I got for the OEM cat covered the cost of my new 421 manifold and a magnaflow sports cat (which is still sat in the shed as I fell in love with the sound and decided against welding it in lol)
Yeh I wouldn't bother, a 197 can be had for peanuts now.
By the time you've got the engine and put it in I bet your not far off the cost of a 197, and then You've got a Clio 3 with a good engine but a non rs chassis, brakes, suspension, and paying the cost of modified car insurance. Seems...
I'm surprised there's a thing left of your oe cat!
My phase 2 172 cat collapsed and I replaced it with a 90 quid cats2u cat which worked perfectly fine.
I wouldn't bother with a sports cat, even a decat doesn't really gain you much, so a sports cat for the price of them seems a waste of time
